A device that completely replaces laundry chemicals?

OZAg+ replaces laundry detergents, fabric softeners, sanitizers and even washing machine cleaners with the use of Ozone and Silver Ion technologies.

The OZAg+ laundry system uses air and electricity to generate Ozone which is dissolved in water. Silver ions from a replaceable cartridge protect laundry fabrics with an antimicrobial layer that last up to 30 days.

But does it really work? We'll let the science do the talking.


But first... What is ozone?

Ozone, is a natural substance found in the earth's atmosphere, and is crucial for life on our planet. Made of 3 atoms of oxygen (O3), ozone is also known as trioxygen or activated oxygen. The smell of ozone is reminiscent of the air after a fresh thunderstorm, as ozone is produced when lightning splits oxygen in the air.

Favoured by professionals, ozone also happens to be great at cleaning, de-greasing, deodorizing and disinfecting. Studies have found that Ozone kills micro-organisms 3200 times faster and 50 times more effectively than chlorine bleach.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, ozone's reputation has been boosted as the choice disinfectant for high risk locations such as airports, hospitals and nursing homes.

Aqueous Ozone is a natural hypoallergenic laundry cleaner


Detergent vs Aqueous Ozone

Detergents are primarily made of petrochemical or oleo-chemical derived surfactants. These harsh chemicals bind to both the dirt and water, pulling the dirt from fabric fibers as the water is agitated. Hot water is essential to accelerating the chemical reactions of detergent, but it also speeds up the breaking of fabric fibers, leading to microfiber shedding. Unless disinfectants are added, detergents rely on hot water to destroy bacteria, viruses and mold. These hidden microbes are the cause of stale-smelling and slimy washers.

On the other hand, ozone is naturally reactive and effectively oxidizes organic matter and neutralizes microbes such as viruses, bacteria and mold. Studies have proven ozone to be effective against SARS-CoV-1 (SARS), SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19), MERS-CoV (MERS) and H1N1, destroying 99.9% of viruses in under 2 minutes.

Ozone also breaks up Inorganic matter such as grease and dirt. Ozone's gentle action and use of cold water reduces microfiber shedding, meaning less lint to clear from your dryer and longer lasting clothes too. Once it reacts, Ozone loses an oxygen atom and turns back into oxygen (O2), leaving nothing behind. It even removes water from your laundry for quicker drying time.

Fabric softener vs Aqueous ozone

Fabric softeners work by coating fabrics with a thin waxy layer to create a smooth softness. But these waxy chemicals repel water, and causing fabrics to lose absorbency. Softeners are difficult to remove, and can even trap microbes in fabrics, leading to funky smells and stains.

If you've always wondered how hotels keeps their towels so luxuriously fluffy yet absorbent, the industry secret is ozone! Ozone removes the water minerals and residual laundry chemicals that settle in and cause your laundry to feel hard and rough. No residue means your towels will feel as good (and soft) as new.

 Are there cons to aqueous ozone?

Just like bleach, ozone works by oxidizing—using too much ozone may affect colourfastness of clothes. That's why OZAg+ comes with two ozone concentration settings: high for large/heavily soiled loads, or low for smaller, moderately soiled loads.

Then, how do Silver Ions work?

Silver ions have long been known to destroy microbes by breaking through their cell membrane and disrupting functions. The use of this technology has expanded in recent years from the medical field to athletic wear and reusable face masks. In the wash, OZAg+ Silver Ion technology create a protective layer on fabrics that kills 99.9% of microbes on contact for up to 30 days.

Unlike Ozone, Silver Ions cannot be generated from the air. That's why we designed the OZAg+ Silver Ion cartridge last at least 730 washes and to be replaceable.
